The Knesset House Committee Wednesday morning was set to discuss suspending Omri Sharon's membership in the Knesset. MK Ronnie Bar-On (Kadima) refused to convene the committee, but Arieh Eldad (National Union) petitioned the High Court of Justice to insist that it assembles, according to Israel Radio. Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's son pled guilty in court two weeks ago to the charges of concealing illegal donations for his father's election campaign for Likud leadership in 1999. The most serious of the charges in Sharon's indictment were false entries into the documents of a corporate body, which calls for a jail sentence of up to five years, and perjury, for which he may be liable to an incarceration of up to three years.
